Kill Devil Hills Wedding | Michaela & Chris
Sprinkles, Fireworks and Fringe!
Nags Head Beach Wedding
Chis and Michaela decided on a destination wedding on the Outer Banks. The couple is from NYC and spent the week longing with family in a big beach house in Kill Devil Hills, NC.
Candace met with them earlier in the week and they had a fun sunrise engagement session.
We fell in love with the couple’s engagement rings! The have each other’s fingerprints engraved on their wedding bands! Such a neat idea! I can’t help but think of the generations to come, and their amazement at seeing the fingerprints being passed down through generations.
Michaela and Chris had their own unique style as they walked down the aisle. Renee Landry Events set up the pews on the beach for their intimate wedding. Bouquets, head wreaths, and boutonnieres all smelled lovely with the lavender and rosemary intertwined.
Michaela’s sis is an absolute hoot! She kept us cracking up throughout the evening, and her maid of honor song was incredible! No shyness there!
The wedding guests all surprised the couple mid-way through the reception by wearing fringed Outer Banks t-shirts! Everyone had different designs, and came out during the first dance with sparklers. A neighbor (no doubt a tourist) down the street just so happened to be lighting off fireworks at the same time as first dance! As illegal as it may be, they had impeccable timing!
We had checked radar, and were expecting rain, with dodged us completely, until first dance. We had just a few sprinkles which held the light gorgeously!
Dawn’s Kitchen came to the beach cottage, catered and bartended the evening. Everyone was thrilled with the dinner and especially the icecream bar and Duck Donuts! The groom is notorious for his love of bacon, and Dawn made sure to have bacon at every course! From salad to dessert, there was pork everywhere!
Thanks for having us!!
Many Congrats to you two!
